all that jazz

which is a cuter story to tell your kids?

“I met your father when I fell into his lap on the subway and, although we didn’t know each other, we immediately felt a special connection”

OR

“I met your father when he saved my life by lifting my head out of the water while I was bobbing for apples and we were best friends for years before we realized our special connection”

Transgender Teen Activist Lands TLC Reality Show

TLC is becoming the latest network to explore transgender life.The cable network has handed out a straight-to-series order for All That Jazz, a docuseries following 14-year-old transgender activist Jazz Jennings, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The 11-episode series will feature Jennings — dubbed “The New Face of Transgender Youth” — in her daily life, juggling her foray into high school while navigating how a transgender teen approaches dating and sleepovers all while avoiding male puberty.

OMG Jazz Jennings is getting her own tv show! Consider our calendars marked!

At age 14, Jazz Jennings has already accomplished more than many people two or three times her age. She’s fought for the rights of trans youth like herself; she’s co-written a children’s book based on her life, I Am Jazz; she was named one of Time Magazine’s 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014; she’s been interviewed by Katie Couric and she’s just getting started. However, it seems she’s not content with all of that — she’s also getting ready to take of our televisions. Just within the last two days, two big new projects were announced for Jazz that will hopefully help other trans kids and teens feel like they’re not alone, that they can be themselves and live a life that’s long and happy.

‘If you think you can do better, then do better. Don’t compete with anyone, just yourself. When you are in trouble or have a dilemma, ask yourself, “What’s the important thing?” And when you wake up in the morning, ask yourself how you can be a better person, not just a better performer.“

Bob Fosse (shown pictured of the set of All that Jazz)

Finally uploading my take on suzie-gurus headcanon of mob boss Bog bumping into a doorframe while chanteuse Marianne hoists the slit of her dress a little TOO high to fix her garter. Sorry this took so long hun.<:{ Tried to capture the sensuality of this moment which will later spur inspiration for some rather spicy looking moments of Marianne-cough-sliding across piano suggestively-cough Bog is frustrated as usual.:D Little does he the effect of slightly opened shirt and loose tie to a certain sultry singer. I also did more “lippier” Bog because Krocatoo’s art is such delicious eye candy for inspiration.^^
